 To be honest, I've got both hard-shell shin/knee pads as well as 661 Kyle Straights, and even the hard-shell one says, "This product will not protect against significant impacts, nor will it significantly reduce the chance of a fracture".

The Kyle Straights aren't designed to withstand impacts large enough to break a bone. They are more to prevent lacerations and below, to be honest.

You have to knock yourself pretty damn hard to break any bone, and a layer of plastic and low-yield impact foam isn't really going to effect that all that much.
